Due to COVID-19, we’re currently holding our open days online – including our next virtual open day on 13 January (4.30-7pm).

These virtual open days give you the same information-packed experience as an on-campus open day, including presentations, Q&As and campus tours.

So, how can you benefit from attending? What can you expect? And how can you book your place? Keep reading to find out more.

Why attend a virtual open day

Choosing your college course is a big decision. You may not know where or what you want to study yet. A virtual open day with South & City College Birmingham gives you the chance to learn more and find out next steps.

The bonus with an online open day is that you can do everything from the comfort of your sofa:

  • Learn more about our courses
  • Put your questions to our tutors
  • Learn about industry trends and career progression
  • Ask about the college application process
  • Take a 360 virtual college campus tour

Interested? The next step is to book your place on a live session.

How to book your place

You can reserve your place on our next virtual open day by booking online.

You’ll then get a confirmation email. On the day of your live session, we’ll send you a follow-up email with a joining link.

How does a virtual open day work?

Our virtual open day is a series of live sessions, focussed on the different subjects that the college teaches. Each session runs twice, at 4.30pm and 6pm.

Click the link in your registration email to go to your chosen session, where our tutors will tell you about our courses, facilities and next steps for applying. Tutors may also speak about specific course topics, how they teach the courses, and other useful details, such as testing and grading.

If the presentation doesn’t answer your questions, you can type them into the Q&A chat feature. Our tutors will answer them and post links to further information.
